Deep wound healed

While cleaning out my dad’s garage years ago, I jumped down from some shelving and my knee hit some machinery. I could feel that there was a cut, and it began to bleed.

I kept cleaning and tried to focus on the spiritual truths that had been taught to me throughout my upbringing in Christian Science. After a few minutes though, I thought the cut was severe enough that I needed to stop moving and concentrate on praying. So I lay down on the floor, and simply asked God what I needed to know. Immediately, this statement written by Mary Baker Eddy, the Discoverer of Christian Science, came to me: “And how is man, seen through the lens of Spirit, enlarged, and how counterpoised his origin from dust, and how he presses to his original, never severed from Spirit!” (The First Church of Christ, Scientist, and Miscellany, p. 129).

Well, the shift from thinking of this wound as severe to the spiritual fact that man is “never severed” from Spirit, God, is not something I would have come up with on my own; it was the Christ, the idea of God, guiding me. Immediately, the sensations and the bleeding stopped. I looked at the cut and found that it had closed.
